"[It's been] A long December and there's reason to believe...

...Maybe this year will be better than the last."

2008 2009

Wow, what a year. Is it just me or does everyone say that when they reflect on the past year? It seriously feels like I have grown and even aged a lot this past year. What with all the vicissitudes of my emotions, finances, relationship and even job status, it's kept my head reeling and spinning almost the entire year!

I feel a calm now for some reason. There is always something so relaxing to me mentally about the 1st date of January. It brings me great relief, great hope and great expectations.

I started a business online, it needs lots of advertising for now to be successful but the cost of advertising versus the profitability in a 2 week test run were not promising. I have done this before however and have been successful at it with NO money. I just need to get this site positioned so it can be found organically on the search engines. Google Ad Words are just way to expensive for now. There are a host of things that I have done and am doing to get this idealistic position but I have yet to see the fruits of my labor. The busiest time of the year for my product line starts in a couple of weeks so maybe the money I put out in advertising will be returned more quickly then.

Anyway, sorry to bore you with that, in other news, I will be moving to Verizon this year and getting a car. As most of you might remember I sold my SUV last summer and didn't get it replaced right away. Well I still don't have one. But I plan on purchasing a piece of dirt this February, which may turn into March if I get the new Blackberry Storm in January.

Well I hope you all have had a great couple of months. I haven't posted in forever and apparently haven't been missed too much ;). I look forward to hearing from you guys and will be catching up on what you all have been up to.

Good luck with your business venture!

I know... whenever I look back, I can't help but think that I probably age about 10 years every year. Oh well, I hope your 2009 will be amazing :)
